Reneé Sarah Wilkinson: Obituary


Reneé Sarah Wilkinson, age 33, of Cleveland, passed away Saturday, July 27, 2019.

Reneé was born in Pennsylvania, earned a Bachelor of Commercial Arts Degree, was a dedicated mother and a homemaker. She attended church regularly at Concord @ Mt. Yonah. To quote Reneé, “A few days ago, Domenic showed me a bud on the morning glory vine. We’d been waiting months for this, since we started the seeds. I had really thought the vines weren’t getting enough sun to flower. “Maybe tomorrow, it’ll bloom!” Sure enough, the next morning – not only did it bloom- but it was the biggest, bluest morning glory I’ve ever seen. I shouldn’t have doubted it.
I thought about the heavy prayers I have right now. Can God show that, that not only does He care, but is working things out that I can’t even see yet – through a morning glory that I didn’t think would bloom? To me, He can.”
Lamentations 3:22-23
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
